"A Pain That I'm Used To" is a song by English electronic band Depeche Mode. It is the opening track on their eleventh studio album, Playing the Angel (2005). The song was released on 12 December 2005 by Mute Records as the album's second single, and the 42nd DM single overall.. The single contains remixes by UK Mute label mates Goldfrapp, and Jacques Lu Cont (Stuart Price). There are also two radio versions. The first one is only a slight remix, whereas the second contains a completely different, more electronic introduction and instrumentation.

Although "Better Days" was mentioned to be the B-side for the single in its press release, it ended up being a track called "Newborn" when the track lists were released. "Better Days" went on to be the B-side to the following single, "Suffer Well". "Newborn" is a slow song that transforms into a harder song during the chorus. It is a fan-favourite in terms of B-sides.

The single was only physically released in the UK. The US only had a digital release (i.e., iTunes). The song reached number 15 upon UK release. In the US, the song debuted at number 45 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart on 14 January 2006. It eventually reached number 6.

The track is one of the few Depeche Mode songs to feature a real bass, which is played by Andy Fletcher in this one.[1]
